    Good morning!!

    I'm writing to ask help on development of a modern chess program for MorphOS. On the OS4 platform, I released Amifish, a GUI for the chess engine Stockfish, a command line program UCI compliant (Universal Chess Interface). Some time ago, I released MorphOS version also, but MorphOS version of Stockfish wasn't existing, so I used another engine, Predateur.

    Stockfish is a very strong program, free and opensource. Is wrote in C++ language. Moreover, several forks of that project are born.

    The goal I want to achieve, is to give to the Amiga community a modern chess program, for several platforms (OS4, AROS, MorphOS), releasing it for free.

    I tried several times to compile Stockfish, but I never did. I ask if someone is able to do it, and if so, to contact me, as I have an optimal version of Stockfish in order to give a complete program to the community, because it can manage both the opening books and the Syzygy tables of the finals. It would therefore be excellent, in my opinion, to port this version instead of the one available on the official website of Stockfish, which has the advantage of giving the strongest algorithm, but does not support the opening books, which I could not easily implement in the GUI. If it can help, Stockfish has already been ported for OS4 and AROS, the makefile of these versions can be a help to make others.
